Our Upcoming 2017-2018 Concert Season!
Praise from the Royal Courts
Let God Arise – Chapel Royal Version- Handel
As Longs the Hart – Chandos # 6- Handel
Te Deum – Charpentier
Saturday, November 11, 2017 8:00 PM
Congregation B’Nai Shalom, Westborough
Let God Arise, a recomposed anthem written for King George I,
demonstrates Handel at his best as he reworked his earlier Chandos
Anthem and added new material. Our edition of As Pants the Hart is
one which interchanges some of the best of Handel’s two different
versions of this same anthem. The brilliant Te Deum by Charpentier,
perhaps the greatest French musician of the 17th century, will close the
concert on a festive and royal note.
